Anal sex and ‘HIV’

“The rate of new HIV infections is especially high among gay men recently diagnosed with a rectal sexually transmitted infection (STI), according to research conducted in New York City and published in the online edition of Clinical Infectious Diseases.

…“Our results demonstrate that rectal CT/GC infections are objective markers for identifying persons at an exceptionally high risk for HIV,” comment the authors.

STIs can cause biological changes that increase susceptibility to infection with HIV.”

Put another way, maybe STIs combined with the need for treatments that can be harsh on the gut increase the likelihood of becoming HIV+ in accordance with Tony Lance’s theory.
